=== Templates for New Pages and Sections ===
Once the page is created, we demand the pages to follow a specific structure. You need to create this structure manually by simply copying the headings from either any other page or you can copy it from either the [[Template:Subpage|Subpage template]] or the [[Template:ApplicationArea|template for application areas]]. To do so, you can simply click "Edit Source" on the template page, then highlight all text and copy it to your clip board and then click "Edit Source" on your newly created page and paste the content.
